FICM voltage drop at WOT
Last saturday I noticed, while floored and going around a black smoking Duraturd, that according to my Edge CTS, my FICM voltage dropped down to 41v. However my headlights didn't dim and there weren't any indications of a charging system problem.
I will still have the alternator load tested just to be sure.
Today I was accelerating heavily and the same alert goes off, FICM had again dropped to 41v.
Now I know a lot of people here use FICMrepair.com or a BPD FICM, but has anyone used one of the many ebay services? They advertise repairs and 58v upgrades relatively inexpensively on there, wasn't sure if it was legit or whatnot.
